almostJDM : 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STi



Yup I finally broke and got myself a new car, a 2013 Subaru WRX STI Premium in WRB, picked it up for 31k out the door sticker was 37k , anyways I will have photos up sometime soon, oh and it comes with an SPT catback exhaust, and an SPT short throw shifter, with Black Alcantara and leather seats, it's my first brand new car and will probably be my last lol but I am planning on paying $50 or so extra each month since my payments arnt very fun haha, but within a few months it should be down to a better payment, my main reason for getting a new car in general, is so I wont have to worry about constantly putting money into my old car






Engine:
Cobb AP V3
IAG Air Oil Separator

Exhaust:
Invidia Q300
Invidia catless Downpipe

Wheels:
Factory 18x8.5 with 245/45/18 Blizzak WS70's for winter

Suspension:
Fortune Auto 500 Generation 5's w/swift springs

Interior:
Factory Black Alcantara/ Leather seats
STI shift knob

Exterior:
Stock WRB
Blacked out Headlights with TSX-R clear lenses
Morimoto LED high beam bulbs
Morimoto XB LED fogs
Depo LED Tail Lights
2015 WRX third brake light w/ flashing module
SPT Vortex generator
Bayson-R front lip
Bayson-R STI Side skirt lips
Perrin Wing Stabilizers
Subiespeed F1 Style LED Rear fog
Varis Style Rear Diffuser


Brakes:
Factory Brembo's

Other:

Future Plans:

CF Hood (-22lbs)
Cobb SF intake
Turbo heat shield (Cobb, GRimmspeed, Cusco, Tomei ETC)
Tomei Turbo Suction hose (further in the future)
Perrin EBCS Pro
Cusco strut tower bars F+R
Cusco Rear Power Brace's
Cusco Type 2 front Lower arm bar (weight vs stock unknown)
Cusco front power brace
Oswald performance front and rear bumper beams (-27lbs)
GrimmSpeed Master cylinder brace
Light weight front seats (brand undecided) (-15 to 20lbs per seat)
GT Spec-D steering wheel
Tint!!!

Total estimated weight loss with mods: -100 to 122lbs (this doesn't include various DIY removals, and could possibly have more weight removed then this or less)

as you can see most of the mods will be to lighten, stiffen and help the cars handling

Funny thing is.... I didn't, I dunno why it ended up being that low, and I asked and he said he haggled with the bank, to get me the car, and that was that, now time to super size my budgeting for the next few months to see how I fair with the extra payment

Congratulations, you'll love the STi.

Any plans for it or planning to stay stock, that was my goal when I got mine but that went out the window pretty quick.

haha, I do lol, but not nearly as much, I will save up while I finish the fab work, lucky for me I have a yearly payment to norco gas/welding so I don't have to pay monthly and can get new CO2 bottles or whatever gas I need without paying anything, I paid for a year back in October so I have 10 months left lol but it was only $10 a month anyways, but yeah I'll finish the fab work then wait a little to buy a part

Looking at the pics I see a few options you didn't list. You have an STi shift nob that is not included with the short throw and also the SPT Vortex generator on your roof. Looks great.

Oh and about my plans for it, I am not going to mess with it for at least a few months, I am going to wait and see how my finances actually handle it compared to what I budgeted it out as, but I want to get a few exterior pieces, like the JDM rear fog light, front lip, new wheels, a few engine mods like AP, intake, header, up and down pipes, that would be it for a while.

No real need for an intake on these cars I bought mine on impulse, downpipe and ap will take you to stage 2 which is plenty power.

I plan on doing the rear fog eventually, lately I've been itching to do suspension.

Sweet buy! That's a sick car. I love Subarus. That's nice yours comes with all those goodies too!

I was in the same boat too. I was tired of spending money on old crappy cars, so I bought my Civic.

Awesome choice, you're gonna have fun with this beast!

Uppipe should be kinda pointless too.

KillerB oil pickup and Kartboy shift bushings should be tops on your list of things to replace. Whatever you do, stay as far away from Mobil 1 as possible. An aftermarket oil pressure gauge also can't hurt. These motors are immensely sensitive to oiling issues.

I believe Annapolis Subaru will take Subaru Bucks for aftermarket parts if you apply for a Subaru Chase credit card.

As has been said, a flash and tune are PLENTY for these cars in the power department. Trust me.

EDIT: Since when did the BBS become optional on the Premium sedan?
